About the birth/parentage of John Guest who married Penelope Easthope:-
- In a family tree from 1820s his birth-date is given as 1/1/1698 son of John Guest (1671) & Mary, but doesnt make it clear who the father is of John (1671). (This could be John & Cecily Hartshorne)
- In a family tree from 1903 his baptism is unknown, but he is given as son of John Guest (bap 17/2/1679-80) & Mary Major (married at Bendall 1696), where John Guest is son of Richard Guest & Mary Parramore (marr 1674). Richard was bap 27/2/1647 at Linley, bur 1681 at Broseley. The disadvantage of this is that John (1679/80) is rather young to be marrying then.
- This is an alternative to various Internet genealogies which assume that he is John Guest baptised 1703/4 son of Charles Guest and Mary Davis.

The 1903 tree also has a different wife (Elizabeth Major) for Charles son of John Guest & Cecily Hartshorne. However I dont think they had found the 1703 marriage at Highley of Charles Guest and Mary Davis.

The 1903 tree also has Thomas (1667) son of John & Cecily as the father of Thomas (1694), rather than Thomas (1669). This fits with our family tradition that Penelope Firmstone née Guest (1738) married her cousin John Guest (1750) brother of Thomas (1748) - however that might just have been assumed later. The theory about Thomas (1669) certainly sounds plausible.

It would be useful to see the various Guest wills at Hereford record office - they might clear up some ambiguities.

I have an inventory of Richard Ghost (sic) of Broseley dated 1676. I believe this isn't an inventory following a death but one taken after his possesions were seized. The record was in the Much Wenlock Bailiffs Court files and taken by a Burgess and a sixman (my ancestor).

Some time ago, I was sent some photos of a Guest family tree, apparently drawn up in the 1820s (or thereabouts) which is great for confirming what I've already discovered,

In Thomas Beard's Diary it says that in 1829 he compiled a Guest family tree going back 200 years.

To add to this thread (7 years later)
I have just found my connection to the Guest family of Broseley.

I have for years struggled with my Harris family that originate from Birmingham, however this weekend I found a grave in Madeley which has revealed a fair few more names for my tree.

My connection is Fanny Guest bn 1771, Daughter of Alexander Guest bn 1741 to John and Penelope.
Fanny married John Harris, unfortunately my search on the Harris family stops again as he died 1820 in London and I can't find anymore information on him.
However the find at least allows me to discover Fanny's family.
